    I knew Travis in college and grew really close to him. He was such a joy to be around and such a genuine person. He always spoke highly of his family and was always there for his friends if they needed a helping hand. We got in a bad fight 6 years ago and haven’t spoken since, but not a day has gone by where I hoped he was doing well. I remember his dad gave us mariners tickets one year and we went to see a mariners game. We got to sit in the nicest seats and we both had so much fun. He loved his dad so much and I remember him telling me all the stories and shenanigans they got into. Travis was a really great person and although we had our differences he made a huge imprint on my life and I would not be the same without him. I feel like it may be inappropriate of me to reach out to his family or friends now since of what happened between us, but I know he loved you all dearly. Whenever he spoke about his family his face lit up. I know he was homesick being so far away from them when I knew him and I hope he at least got to spend more time with them his last years.

    I just found out about his passing when I was driving around town and saw a sticker on someones car. I googled his name to see if it was him and found this and just wanted to share my memory of him. I wish I could have apologized for our fight 6 years ago but sometimes life doesn’t go as you’ve hoped. I am really disheartened by this news and am keeping his family and friends in my thoughts.

    Travis was in my class, when I taught 6th grade at Central Elementary. I remember him fondly. He was a tiny little guy back then, quiet, shy, didn’t like a lot of attention. He had a sweet disposition, and I enjoyed having him in my class. I remember him talking about growing up and joining the military. I’m so sad to hear of his death. May God give his family members peace and comfort during this difficult time.

    My deepest and heart felt sympathies go out to the friends and family of Travis Molitor. Travis and I worked together at Sound Tractor for several years, and during that time I got to Know him. He was always quick with a joke, there to lend a hand when needed, and able to recite (often annoyingly) the most intricate plot details of any blockbuster movie or television show ever produced. It was through these conversations both trivial, and serious, I learned how important family was to him. Whether he was relating in detail about a life problem that he and his fiancé had to overcome, a humorous anecdote about his children, or the pride expressed in his words when speaking about his father, I could always tell that family was central to his life. I know that there are no words that can ease the pain of his passing, but it is my hope that by recognizing that his family was never far from his thoughts, lend some comfort. Travis will be missed by all who knew him, but his character and the lives he touched will live on.

    Mo. You were one of the first to accept my brother and I into to unit. You always made us smile. I’m glad you are not struggling anymore. I’m glad your pain is gone. It’ll be hard for a while, but we will never forget you. Jordan already went out and got you a beer, the night we heard. We had you with us, in our hearts. I hope to see you soon. Not too soon, though. Take care, brother. We miss you.

    My deepest condolences to the Molitor Family on the lost of your dear loved one may you draw comfort from God’s Love and from the Love and Support of Family and Friends to give you strength and peace during your time of sorrow


    If it’s ok? I would like to have the opportunity to speak at SGT. MOLITOR”S service and recite a prayer in his honor. He was truly a shining light, an outstanding man, and exemplar NCO and brother in arms. I’m proud and honored to have known and served with SGT. MOLITOR, TRAVIS E. I would also like to thank SGT. MOLITOR’S entire family for giving me the opportunity of attending his service.
    May god shine upon his spirit and may his soul rest in peace.
    In the name of the father, the son, and the holy spirit.
